Samsung has a plethora of fantastic Android phones that manage to reach into all different budgets and use cases. Unfortunately, this can often confuse people because it’s a lot of information to take in and they need to do a lot of research before they make a decision.

So to help you avoid disappointment (or overpaying for a phone you don’t need) we’ve put together this list of the best Samsung phones of 2019.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is still one of the most feature-rich phones that you’ll ever come across. With its powerful Snapdragon 855 processor, 8GB of dedicated ram and multiple storage options, there’s really no better option at this price point. Despite the S20 series dominating most of 2020’s Android market, you can still find some amazing Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus deals on the internet and with your carrier. So if you’re looking for a flagship phone at discounted prices, we can’t recommend the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus enough.
Samsung Galaxy S10E
When the Samsung Galaxy S10 series of phones came out, most people didn’t expect Samsung to launch a budget-oriented version that would contain most of the same internal specs but come at a much lower price point. The S10E is one of the best budget-oriented phones and sits comfortably in the midrange in terms of smartphone prices. If you’re looking for something that doesn’t scream cheap but also doesn’t break the bank, then the S10E is a solid choice.
Samsung Galaxy S10
When the top-end is out of your reach but you still want something premium, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the phone for you. It sits firmly between the S10E and S10 Plus in terms of performance and features, making it the best Samsung phone from 2019 for a lot of people. However, we typically recommend that you go one way or the other instead of aiming for a complete middle point. You can save a bit of money by going for the S10E and putting your savings towards something else, or you can spend a bit more and go for a top-of-the-line S10 Plus.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
The Galaxy Note series is known for its large screen, multifunctional S-Pen and excellent productivity features. The Note 10+ comes with a massive 6.8-inch screen that still manages to be comfortable while providing plenty of screen real estate for productivity tasks. While it’s certainly one of the most expensive phones on this list, it’s also feature-rich and well worth the premium you pay for the larger screen. If you need anything bigger than the Note 10+, we would probably recommend getting a tablet instead!
Samsung Galaxy Note 10
Most people purchase a Galaxy Note phone for the larger screen, but if you think it’s a little too big to fit in your hands then you might want to consider the non-plus model. While the screen size is actually very similar to the S10 Plus, you still get the included stylus pen which can help you with a wide range of different productivity tasks. If the pen is what you’re after, the Galaxy Note 10 is still an utterly unique smartphone that is worth every penny. However, if you’re able to afford it, we highly suggest the larger Note 10+ to get the full “Note” experience.
Samsung Galaxy A51
Lastly, we have another budget-friendly offering from Samsung; the Samsung Galaxy A51. Despite being a part of Samsung’s budget series, you still get excellent performance with the Exynos 9611 chip and plenty of storage for photos, videos and music. While the camera is a little lacking, it’s difficult to complain given the price point which is actually lower than the S10E’s cost. Despite that, you still get access to a perfectly usable everyday phone that is simple, stylish and does everything you need it to.
Samsung makes a surprising number of smartphones and they each serve a purpose, Whether you need the large screen size of the newest Galaxy Note or something cost-effective to give your kids, there’s a smartphone for everyone in Samsung’s lineup.
